02-06-18 The Thoreau Whisperer – Channeling the Spirit of Henry David Thoreau. A True Story by author Cathryn McIntyre

Henry David Thoreau, Journal, November 5, 1837.
After an encounter with her mentor, an eminent Thoreau scholar, eleven days after his death, in The Thoreau Whisperer, Cathryn McIntyre finds she must hone her psychic abilities, set her doubts aside and accept the role she was destined to play in a remarkable collaboration that allows the words of Henry David Thoreau to be heard once again in our time
